~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
WAYS TO COUNTERBALANCE STRESS AT WORK
At lunch time, sit in your parked car w/sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.
Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
Encourage your colleagues to join you in a little synchronized chair dancing.
Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "IN."
As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."
Sing along at the opera.
Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.
When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I Won!", "I Won!" "3rd time this week!!!"
When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling "Run for your lives, they're loose!"

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
I made myself a snowball
As perfect as could be.
I thought I'd keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed.
By Shel Silverstein

ARCHIVE OF PRINT ADS
This interesting web site has an archive of print ads ranging from 1940 to present. You can search by keyword or by year . . . My husband and I got a good laugh searching for "computer" and seeing what the latest technology was in, say, 1977 and how incredibly expensive it was! How about 64K (yes kilobytes) of RAM for only $1495!!
You can visit this fun site at: http://www.adflip.com/
